C# - How To Bind A DataTable With Complex Data Objects To A GridView

Jan 31, 2011

My DataTable is programatically generated, and contains objects of type JobInstance in the cells.


When I bind this DataTable to an ASP GridView, it only displays the first column. But if I remove the "typeof(Job)" when creating the column (the line with // !!!), the GridView displays all the columns by showing the result of JobInstance.ToString() in the cells. However, I have no access to the underlying JobInstance object, only the string values that are being displayed.

I need access to the JobInstance object when displaying the GridView (for example in the OnRowDataBound), because I want to access the fields inside JobInstance for each cell to determine formatting options, and add other links in each cell.

C# - Bind A Complex Dictionary To A Gridview?

Jun 6, 2010

I've used an early binding of a dictionary<string, string> to a gridview to show Urls Text and its HRef as key-value and it works like a charm. But since I want to replace the dictionary with this one :

dictionary<string, LinkInfo>

the binding goes wrong! Should I handle some events like as onItemDataBound or something?
and the LinkInfo structure is:

public struct LinkInfo{
public string href;
public bool Enabled;

Forms Data Controls :: Bind Data From DataSet (DataTable) To A Selectrow DropDownList In GridView?

Nov 19, 2010

I have a Gridview and two link button in that GridView , one link button click is to add edit row ( Edit ), one link button click is to select row ( Select ). I have a dropdownlist inside row which selected when i click link button Select in the gridview edit template, as of my business logic i need to show the dropdownlist only when the user clicks Edit button and when the user clicks Select button . That mean when the user clicks Select button then they clicks Edit button on the gridvview i should allow him to edit the dropdownlist (showing the value to the user through a label).


[Code].... C#

When I click Select link button , then I click Edit link button . They have errors : Index was out of range. Must be non-negative and less than the size of the collection. Parameter name: index" I don't know what error?. How to fix it

Forms Data Controls :: Bind A GridView To A DataTable (in Viewstate) With Full In-line CRUD?

Sep 24, 2010

I need a bit of help with a scenario. I am working on a web application that requires huge amounts of data to be Added, Deleted, and Updated. The data entry forms are divided into logical groups through Multiviews. All the information is saved when the mighty Finish button is pressed. The current setup (previous developer) does not allow me to use transactions. Therefore, if I am to save a new Courier to the database, I need to add his/her Distance and Rate info. In addition, I need to add his/her Banned Areas info (Area Name, Post Code).This is where it gets interesting. Obviously, the DistamceAndRate table and the BannedArea table in my SQL Server will have the CourierID as a foreign key. Since I'm going to save the Courier as well as the Rates and Areas info in one go, I cannot have the newly created CourierID before. Therefore, I cannot bind my Grids for Distance + Rates and Banned Areas directly to database.What I am doing is creating two DataTables and managing them in Viewstate through properties as follow:


So, on page load, the DataTables are initialized with a blank schema. Here are the attempted CRUD implementations (Distance and Rate only):


I am having issues when I am canceling a new entry and when I am editing a new entry. In addition, for Distance and Rates, Rate is acting as unique (cannot be repeated) and attempting to control that is also giving me a headache. I end up creating blank rows.And here's the ASPX cut-out:


Hope to get an answer soon.Also, off-topic, I'm using LINQ here. In order to save a Courier and his/her extra details, I first save his/her address to DB. Then I take the ID of the address and save the courier. now the courier ID is avaliable and i start filling extra tables related with the courier table. If something goes wrong, I have to manually delete created rows. LINQ uses transaction internally but only until a SubmitChanges() call. I'm forced to save each entity so I keep calling SubmitChanges().I tried manual transaction but after saving the address inside a transaction, the Address.OID (Address table's mapped prime-key) had a 0. attempting to use this newly added address while saving Courier in the same transaction threw an exception. If there is a way to get the primary key for entities created in a transaction that is yet to be commited, please mention that'll as well.

Passing Complex Objects To Javascript Via IScriptControl?

Mar 24, 2010

I'm playing around with a asp.net page that's using the IScriptControl interface to pass data from the code-behind to the custom javascript object running on the browser.I'm passing a number of properties via IScriptControl.GetScriptDescriptors(), and they're all working fine, except for one.That one is a class derived from System.Collections.Generic.Dictionary<>. And even that one has been working for me, so long as the elements in the collection were scalars - ints, doubles, and strings. But when I tried to pass a member of a class, it showed up as a null object in the javascript. The class in question is marked [Serializable]. I changed it to a struct, and got the same behavior.It looks as if the serializer used in IScriptControl does a shallow copy.

MVC :: Creating Multiple Complex Objects With A Webform?

Mar 3, 2010

I have a form which I use to create an issue. WHen you post the form, the form elements are that of a custom DTO. The DTO is then used on my POST method to create the new entity. That all works fine.

However, I want to add the functionality to add multiple issues at the same time from the same view. In effect, the user would click something like 'Report Additional Problem', and an extra set of form fields would appear (I will like use jquery for this, which I don't have an issue with). However, even with just leaving one set of form fields, the user should still be able to create just one issue. But if I habve my post method take a list or array of my DTO, it doesn't work.

Here is the post method before editing:


What I want to do is for this to take an array or list of NewIssueDto. I would then loop through each one in the list and create a new issue from it.

Entity Framework - Collection Of Complex Child Objects In MVC 3 Application?

Feb 20, 2011

I want to be able to update a model and all its collections of child objects in the same view. I have been referred to these examples: http://haacked.com/archive/2008/10/23/model-binding-to-a-list.aspx and http://blog.stevensanderson.com/2010/01/28/editing-a-variable-length-list-aspnet-mvc-2-style/ .

For example, I have an object Consultant, that has a collection of "WorkExperiences". All this is in an Entity Framework model. In the view, the simple properties of the Consultant object is no problem, but the collection I cannot get a textbox to show up for. I tried following the examples in the links above, but it doesn't work. The problem is, in those examples the model is just a list (not an object with a child list property). And also, the model again is an EF model. And for some reason that doesn't seem to work as in those examples.


This stuff with the EditorTemplate works fine in Phil Haack's sample project, which I downloaded to try, but here, with the EF model or whatever the problem is, I don't get any textbox at all. The table in the view is just there as a test, because in the table I do get the rows for WorkExperiences, whether I add an empty WorkExperience object or fill out its properties doesn't matter, the rows show up for each object. But again, no textbox...

SQL Server :: Create A Complex Query And Bind It To A Repeater?

Aug 17, 2010

I have written a web project using Visual Web developer 2008 and SQL 2005. I need to create a complex query and bind it to a repeater.

I have 3 tables

Table 1 - Department
Dept_Id (int) primary key
Dept_Name (vchar)
Include_Unavailable (bit)
Table 2 - Employee
Employ_Id (int) primary key
Dept_Id (int) foreign key
Employ_Name (vchar)
Table 3 - Schedule
Sched_Id (int) primary key
Employ_Id (int) foreign key
Date (datetime)

My query is as follows:

SELECT Department.Dept_Name, Employee.Employ_Name, Schedule.Date

FROM Department, Employee, Schedule


In my query I want all departments and employees listed who work on a particular date. In addition, if the Department.Include_Unavailable is 'true' I want to create a row with the department and employees who work in that department even if they are not schuled to work. I will eventually list these employees as 'unavailable' but do not want to list all unavailable employees as unavailable. Only employees that work in departments that have Department.Include_Unavailable set to 'true'
